Angel has seen firsthand the symptoms of Santa Barbara’s economic reality. The dozens of retail vacancies, problems with aggressive transient panhandlers, and a lack of vision in the downtown corridor are a result of Santa Barbara’s lack of leadership and innovation.
With an uncertain economic future, we can’t continue the same old ways. So, Angel has decided to give back and make a meaningful difference for future generations by running for mayor.
“I have no political aspirations besides offering all of my experience, my leadership skills, and my vision for the future of the City of Santa Barbara to its current and next generation of citizens,” said Angel.
His 40-years of experience in business gives Angel a unique perspective, one that is not steeped in the inherent biases of partisan politics or those using the office as a stepping stone to higher office.
Angel’s innovative vision for the future addresses a few simple principles through strong Mayoral leadership.
